Natasha Noel

1. Two tips for wanna be yoga practitioners:
Get on your mat EVERYDAY, even if to just be in child pose in that way even if it’s for 10 minutes you will start growing seeds of discipline.

Be mindful and fully aware when you’re practising. It doesn’t matter if you’re doing a handstand or even a forward fold, but your mind should be calm and your breath should be normal.

2. What keeps you motivated:
A lot of things keep me motivated. From yoga practitioners to dancers or artists to my followers inspire me. Passion drives me and to keep my creativity flowing, I’m lucky to have inspiration everywhere.

3. Most difficult/challenging asana:
Shavasana. Because it’s not sleep but conscious relation and invariably I sometimes do go to sleep. But finding consciousness in various parts of my body like the little finger (pink) or my toes, I still find difficult.

Samrat Pasham

1. Two tips for wanna be yoga practitioners:
Strive towards progress and not perfection.

For real growth, go into each practice with an open mind, check in your ego, doubts, preconceived ideas at the door and just trust the process.

2. What keeps you motivated:
Yoga is like an ocean and I keep at it because there is the irresistible prospect of discovering something new about my body and mind almost everyday. An unexplored movement or emotional resolve that I’m capable of.

3. Most difficult/challenging asana:
Supta Virasana or Reclining Warrior was the asana that frightened the living daylights out of me. At that point in my practice I had very tight quads, and the joints in my knee had never really ever had the opportunity to move as much. This asana brought me to tears. But I am now able to hold the posture a bit better and am able to deal with the intense emotions that accompany better as well.

Radhika Bose aka Yogasini

1. Two tips for wanna be yoga practitioners:
Yoga is a practise, not a perfection so don’t be too hard on yourself, be kind. Somedays your body will surprise you and other days it will refuse to listen. All you need is some dedication. Never give up hope.

2. What keeps you motivated:
The sheer joy and pleasure I get after a yoga session. The adrenalin kick, the feeling of an accomplishment , conquering certain fears is what I look forward to when I hit the mat.

3. Most difficult/challenging asana:
I have this innate fear of inversions. I struggle with any form of headstand or handstand. I can do them, but I need a wall for support. Though that doesn’t stop me from practising inversions everyday.

Deepika Mehta

1. Two tips for wanna be yoga practitioners:
